  1. Thank you so much for your feedback - latest survey results.

    Posted on

    When it comes to product design and the way I move my shop forward, I always listen to you.  I only personally have experience of my size breasts and their needs, so the feedback I receive from customers is invaluable to me.

    I decided to add a survey to my after sales email a while ago, and you guys have come up trumps with great answers and guidance for me to help me serve you better.

    I've just been taking a look at the latest batch, and I want to thank every one of you who took the time to fill it out.  If you haven't and would like to, you can at any time.:

    https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/9QM9YLX

    It is of course fully confidential

    Let's take a look at a few results:

    In the latest responses, I see there is a real spread of sizes coming to me for help, so that's great!

    From this spread of sizes, I can see that the direction I've been taking the range, to help cater for wider band sizes that often find the enhancers too narrow, is still a good way to go. It is a myth that those with bigger breasts do not want enhancers.

    I can also see that you still have mixed needs, and that keeping a broad range, even if some are less commercially successful for me than others, is good for you.

    Some of the other questions are really helpful to me, in showing me how the enhancer that you bought worked for you and your bra size, so thank you so much for those.  It was also so good to so good to see a mixed view about what you linked in the range, so even though you are all looking for something different, you are able to find something that you like.

    19 July 18 what did you like from survey chartJPG

    The most important questions for me personally of course are how I can improve.  The age-old debate about firm and soft enhancers came up, and as usually the responses are divided. Those who want a softer natural look and feel were happy that there were plenty of styles to choose from and those wanting a real impact were happy that there were styles that could enable that by being firmer for push.  I will always make sure I have a mixture of firm and soft styles for that reason, keeping the firmer ones for those creating cleavage especially.

    There are certainly areas for me to improve on though, and my to-do list has just been reprinted with them on so that I can get going in making those changes for you.  These were the responses with advice for me:

    19 July 18 for me to change from survey chartJPG

    My goals going forward:

    • Softer and firmer silicone make an appearance, as I expected, but more are going towards softer so I shall continue my experiments to see if I can slightly soften some styles without losing impact.
    • Some of you felt they were too tall.  This can be an issue with smaller band sizes with smaller cup sizes, as the cup is very small and can be overwhelmed by the enhancer.  I shall go through these responses in details and see what styles you bought and see what I can do with those.
    • More pictures, and I can certainly do that! My website package only allows a certain number of images in the gallery, but I can get around it by putting some images in the description too. It's a big job for me as it's a lot more manual, but I can see here that it's what you most want, and therefore it shall be done.

    Thank you so much again for all your responses.  I shall sign off now and get started on these changes for you.  There is no time like the present.

  2. GDPR & Privacy

    Posted on

    I'm sure you've heard so much about the new privacy laws and regulations that have come in.  I won't bore you again with it all, so just a quick outline as to what I've done:

     

    1 Heart  I have deleted all my customer mailing list from times gone by.  I personally was so overwhelmed by all the "do you want to stay on my customer list?" emails that I received, that I decided not to do it.  I just thought it would be best to start afresh.

    I hope that those who have bought from me in the past will remember me enough to come back, and can then choose to sign up to my newsletter.  That way there was no annoying email from me, and anyone that chooses to sign up from this point on, I know really does want to hear from me.  

    2 Heart 150 150  I took a look at all my security settings, all the rules for the GDPR and made sure I was fully compliant.  I am, so that's great. I have outlined my full privacy policy for you guys and you can see it here.  

    3 Heart 150 150Employee-wise it was easy as it is only myself that has any access to your order, so I don't need to train lots of people or worry that they will not follow it.  I will keep all your data safe.

    4 HeartI will start a new newsletter sign up soon and pop it on the site.  You can then elect to sign up without having to place an order where you can also opt in.  I will, as before, only send about 2 emails a year with offers and info about new products.

    I hope that all makes sense, but if you have any questions, do get it touch and I'd be happy to help.

     hello speech bubble

     

    Style 7 has always been one of your favoruites for her pushing your cleavage towards the heavens abilities, and having a smaller and bigger version has enabled me to give an option to more cup sizes.  With the introduction of their glamourous big sister, even more of you can now enjoy her skills.  She comes in as my biggest breast enhancer now, at a whopping 560g, and as she's a firm style, she really gives a good push.

  5. New Boobylicious Tape In 11cm Discs

    Posted on

    I am so happy with how well my boobylicious tape has been helping you.

    I've introduced a bigger 11cm disc which can make it easier with the bigger breast forms.

    She's also coming with more detailed instructions which I will try and find a way to add to the smaller label on the 8cm discs.

    I've also added her as a purchase option for when you buy the larger breast forms, saving on postage enabling me to sell them cheaper for you.  Yay!

    Great news, I now have another checkout option.

    It is labelled "Create Payments" and is provided by Create, who are the Brighton based company who host the website for me.  The payment side of things is processed by the oh-so-familiar and super-secure World Pay, so you can be assuered that your details will be protected, and aren't even accessable to me.  

    You can pay on a card with Create Payments accepting the following credit and debit cards:

    • Visa
    • Visa Debit
    • Visa Electron
    • Maestro
    • Mastercard
    • American Express

    You can still use Paypal, just click the option below during the checkout process. As before you can pay with a Paypal account or just allow them to process the payment from your card, just the same as World Pay.

    Choice is alwasys a good thing :)
